Daughter shot dead, father seriously injured in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Friday, 30 June 2006, 09:34 GMT]
Suspected Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers and EPDP paramilitaries shot and killed Jaffna resident Ms Sathasivam Mathuri, 32, and seriously injured her father Kasipillai Sathasivam, 75, Thursday midnight at 12:17 a.m. at their home in Athiyadi New road, in Athiyady, located 2 km northeast of Jaffna Town, residents said. Sathasivam is the father of a senior Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) commander Archuna, who died in mid 80's in Mannar, and Mathuri is his sister.

The assailants first opened fire at the victims' relative house next door and shot Mathuri and Sathasivam as they emerged from their own house to enquire.

Sathasivam is admitted to the Jaffna teaching hospital in a critical condition and Mathuri's body has been taken to the hospital's morgue, sources said.

Mr. Sathasivam, who was actively engaged in non-violent campaign in the sixties had resigned his Sri Lankan Government post in protest against the Sinhala Only act.

His son, named Thamilarasuvaran, joined the Liberation Tigers and was one of the first Lieutenants of the Tigers.
